Cool more Chuck this season?

It has been pre-empted two weeks in a row. Will new episodes show again before September?

Live and let live.

Are you saying Chuck is on 5 days in a row???

I really like this show...I hope it's not dead...although I have found this to be the weakest season.

I've found the quality of the episodes this season to be somewhat mixed; some pretty good ones, and others that were pretty bland. I didn't really think the whole 'Casey gets his own team' plot thread worked that well. Those Greta guest-stars work for brief appearances as a humourous gag, but not so much for anything beyond that.

Cool Schedule

Can you tell us where we can find that sort of scheduling data?

Live and let live.

I use thefutoncritic.com for longer term schedules and episode histories. It also has the press releases from the networks with the episode summaries and other news releases about cancellations and shows in development.

Zap2it.com is good for the next 2 weeks as well as Canadian TV guide listings.

Yeah, I found the first 2 seasons the strongest. I miss the geeky 80s sci-fi references and 80s music. That quirkiness got me hooked (plus Yvonne!) - but I wouldn't tune in now if it they hadn't already hooked me in the first 2 seasons. It's a little too bad, but I'll stay tuned in out of nostalgia.

Looks like we'll be getting a Season 5 with at least 13 episodes: http://www.tvline.com/2011/05/breaki...ason-5-pickup/

Still the only show I really look forward to each week.

So was I but it seems Chuck is the only NBC show that has significant social media impact. The fans took to tweeting the advertisers during each show thanking them for their sponsorship and the advertisers really responded positively. Also, the almost-confirmation of the renewal trended worldwide on Twitter this evening.

In some respects, I think this ended up be a best-of-the-worst sceanrio. Don't get me wrong, I like the show, particularly the earlier seasons, but NBC was struggling with a number of shows and had to hang on to something.

It appears season 5 will be it from what I'm seeing. Can't wait to see what the storyline will be about.

Yes it looks like the end. I just had this e-mailed to me from a friend in the States, not sure of the source;

Quote:
It’s being reported by various sources that Chuck has cheated death once again. NBC has nearly closed a deal that will bring Chuck Bartowski and friends back for a fifth season. TV Line reports that the peacock network is making a deal with Warner Bros for at least 13 episodes.

Of course, cheating death is nothing new for the TV series. It’s been on the bubble each season and has narrowly escaped being cancelled each time. Fortunately for Chuck fans, the rest of NBC’s schedule has been such a disaster that Chuck’s numbers end up not looking so bad. Had the series been on one of the other three major networks, it would have surely been cancelled long ago.

This season, Chuck’s ratings have been the worst yet. The last two episodes have registered a meager 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.1 million total viewers. The season average is only a 1.7 rating and 5.19 million. Aside from Chase, whose remaining episodes are being burned off on Saturday nights, Chuck is the lowest-rated scripted program currently on the network.

With four seasons and 78 episodes already in the can, it seems very likely that Warner Bros. worked out a deal with NBC for a final season so there would be enough episodes for a syndication package. A sixth season seems highly unlikely but who would have guessed that Chuck would have gone this long?
